I have an L2 which expires on 24th sep 2012.
I would be applying for H1 in 2012 and start working on 1st Oct 2012.
Assuming my H1 Petetion gets approved and I have a refence # to the petetion as well
I would take leave from 25th Sep to .. as my legal status doesnt permit me to work.
For the 7 days time (25th Sep 2012 to Sep 30 2012)
Can I stay back in US without leaving the country and continue working on the same I-94 (Valid till 2014) from 1st Oct 2012 ?
Is my understanding correct ?
